The Heart of Rock & Soul # 960 Bobby Bland

'Seekers of the Sinatra of the blues, you've reached your goal. The arrangement is a bathos of strings, flute and an airy female chorus, the lyric a preposterous confection that's wonderfully absurd from its very first line...

And so it goes, a tour de force performance in which Bland never pushes, never strains and nevertheless leaves you feeling engulfed with a misery unmistakably his.'
